Fuel Surcharge reductions from Qantas

Qantas is set to reduce international fuel surcharges from today, October 9th.

Qantas is set to reduce international fuel surcharges from today, October 9th.

The carrier’s announcement comes amid growing concern over the impact of fuel prices on the aviation industry as a whole.

Reductions in international fuel charges have been introduced on Qantas flights to London airports and other destinations across the UK and Europe.

The airline has also introduced new surcharges on routes throughout the US, Canada, South America, South Africa and India.

John Borghetti, executive general manager of Qantas, said: "Although the price has fallen below US$100 a barrel in recent days, oil remains very volatile and a major challenge for the airline industry.

He also noted that the airline plans to make further reductions.

"Qantas domestic and QantasLink regional fares across a range of routes will be reduced by approximately two to three per cent," he said.

The carrier made the headlines last month when its new Airbus A380, which is renowned for its fuel efficiency, touched down in Melbourne Airport for the first time.
